Governance

Retford Oaks Academy has a board of governors made up of staff, parents, volunteers and members of the business community. Their role is vital in ensuring that every student receives the best possible opportunities during their time at the academy. We believe that ability of our board to work together depends on trust and an understanding of our common purpose.

Our academy board will have a strong focus on our three statutory core strategic functions:

  • ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • holding the Principal to account for the educational performance of the academy and its students, and the performance management of staff; and
  • overseeing the financial performance of the academy and making sure money is well spent

Find out more about our governors via the links below.

The Academies Financial Handbook (s2.5.2) requires the publication on the academy website of certain information about governance in academies.

Please find a link here to the Diverse Academies Trust area on the Diverse Academies website, from where you can find details of our trustees, structure, and scheme of delegation.

If there is anything you wish to raise with any of our governors, please do not hesitate to contact them through Jane Stock, Clerk to Governors:
